  1. watched Pleasantville last week. Highly recommended - what seems to be a surface-level feelgood flick at first, it develops into a super rich film with great symbolism
  2. Of course, that's what I secretly hope for as well lol. However, screen space is really expensive real-estate on a screen like that, which I reckon was one of the reasons they've decided to go with some of the limitations. Imagine introducing more than 1 note per column to the way it is right now - it can only show 4 tracks with all columns or 8 tracks with a single column; adding any more will make the screen look like complete jibberish I reckon. Great point, I knew namedropping Raczynski on their webpage was a bit suspect
  3. I was a super hyped for Polyend Tracker right until the Loopop video. No polyphony on tracks, samples in mono only, only 1 note column per track, only 2fx columns per track, 90sec sample limit, single stereo out channel, granular synth limited to single grain and probably more limitations that I'm not aware of. For me personally, at €500 it seems a bit irrational to choose it over Renoise which cost me under €70 and can run on a shit laptop. And since it doesn't open xrni files (but reads .mod files, that's cool!), there's not much point having both around. The only real advantage it has
  4. The contemporary russian scene has recently remembered Solar X, one of it's more elusive and prolific innovators, albeit for a very short time. A computer scientist by day, Russia's very own answer to Richard by night: Here's a great article written about his label Art-Tek and some of the stories he had to share (including how he stayed with RDJ at his Elephant & Castle place): https://mixmag.io/article/186630 It's in russian, but it should be intelligibly translatable to english via google page translate. I've recently started listening to a
  5. This so much. I've recently bought it and am absolutely ecstatic. I started learning trackers with OpenMPT (great bit of soft too, can even open .mod files, like the deus ex game soundtrack!) but needed a more daw-friendly approach. It's not even Redux but tracker-style production in general just enables you to do intricate stuff in a much more engaging way, to me at least. Mouseclicking midi-notes in is just deathly boring. Regarding sequencers in general, I've been down this rabbit hole and am convinced that there are no good software sequencers (except trackers lol). If you want g
  6. Haha, yeah it does kinda sound like that ! Regarding some of the above: - binaural recordings - As in exporting to ambisonic files or just creating binaural sounding stereo? The former is a bit trickier (would need a standalone system like MNTN - https://mntn.rocks/ ) but the former can be done quite easily with various HRTF plugins (e.g. a max for live device binaural.jit http://www.maxforlive.com/library/device/3981/binaural-jit or a VST like AMBEO Orbit https://en-uk.sennheiser.com/ambeo-blueprints-downloads ) -have comping – I’ve done VERY little comping, but my workflow is to eithe
  7. Sounds like you're wanting instantaneous visual feedback when interacting with the DAW, something which you won't find on any mainstream operating system, because that would require a real-time kernel. You should be able to assign Ableton to use the Nvidia graphics card in the windows settings which may help with the sluggishness you're experiencing. Ive done that already, the issue seems to be rooted in the fact that the screen itself is basically soldered to be "projected" from the Intel chip, non-reassignable. Thing is that I'm 99.9% certain it's an a10 issue. If I'm not mistaken, they'
  8. I would have agreed if I could do binaural recordings, have comping, offline processing, slicing to transients (ableton does that in Simpler but not with an audio sample on its own), proper 3rd party sidechaining without crazy workarounds, functional 4k scaling, assign my own key shortcuts, batch rendering, a functional video engine etc. etc. etc. . I still intend to use ableton but only for live performance and certain bits from m4l. I've already reassigned most key commands in reaper to resemble my workflow in ableton, so when I'm finished with my backlog of projects in ableton, migrating in
  9. Thank you for your opinions, both constructive and otherwise. I've asked and read around some more and decided to give Reaper another go since I'm already familiar with it from using it for audio-post/audio-to-picture sound design, but held off because i felt the midi editor is flimsy. That being said, I've spent the last few days fine-tuning and customising it and seems to be quite alright now. The biggest red flags for me regarding going with cubase were stability (cpu usage and crashing seems to be a recurring issue) and price/paid updates. I think I'd prefer something
  10. ha, recognized the resonance plugin In regards to composing, that's something that i'm concerned with specifically. As much as Live is marketed with slogans like "MAKE COMPLETE SONGS ON THE GO" and "GET CREATIVE WITH YOUR ARRANGEMENTS", I feel like it's not very accomodating to real intricate editing. Then again, I may be blaming the tool instead of blaming the master lol Nothing with the word "fruity" in its name has ever been good
  11. Hello fellow knob-twiddlers, I want to get the community's opinion and/or advice/counter-arguments for somebody who's looking to switch to Cubase. I've been a loyal user of Ableton for 8-9 years, starting with Ableton 8. I've happily bought the suite and the original push when it came out, and always considered it the premium software until just under couple of years ago. Sadly, I was massively disappointed with version 10, especially since I've had to pay for the upgrade as well. First it was the increasingly evident terrible and riddled with old code multicore support. Sessions a
  12. too obvious with the minipops 67 rhythm/groove; no depth to the mix too
  13. if he plays sonar festival i'll get the tix just because of that
